This Eritrean woman found out her husband had abandoned her when she couldn’t find her bank card to pay rent

“The landlord came to collect the rent, and I didn’t have money,” she says. “So, I went to get my bank card, and it was gone. And then I asked my friends, ‘Where is my bank card? And where is my husband?’ They told me he went to Africa.”
